photostory friday: a sign of the times

i was browsing through my overseas trip photos from hong kong and rome, and though i'd share some of the more 'curious' and 'humorous' signs we came across in our travels

some make no sense at all, but i think that just adds to the fun...


i think this means don't stand idly by and watch your dog poop
or, no SMELLY dog poop allowed, but regular poop ok...

fairly self-explanatory 


if only it were that easy..... 

this was at one of the underground train stations
old news now!


...and no carrying MEAT on your BICYCLE either!
(i'm fairly sure that's implied)



does it say 'no fun'?
i'm sure they meant to include it
and all your libras - STAY AWAY TOO!!!



yeah, when they said fresh, i didn't quite have this in mind



this was taken in macau - maybe medicine in hong kong is more real?


this was a juice bar
it just made me want to run away fast from the scary fruit and vege head ladies!


 now where'd i leave the car?
oh, that's right - i parked it at the back of the mattress shop!!!


also in rome
i think the marketers would like you to believe that if you eat special K italian style, that this gorgeous man will appear and sweep you off your feet...

(preferably after you've got out of your dressing gown - sorry sandy!)


coz i ALWAYS want to wash my feet in a public toilet


and this one from POMPEII

i have no idea what it means, but i'm pretty sure that there's a LOT of stuff you can't do ANYWHERE near this construction site!


and this one from outside st peters basillica

no LEDERHOSEN allowed
no one-legged people
no swimming trunks
no one-armed lederhosen-wearing folks either


this was near a place we had lunch 
and no, i didn't go see the SEXY show!


so true...


and onto London at the Ace Cafe



*SIGH* i miss rome...
